EPIC 2020 – Symbiotic bio-Energy Port Integration with Cities by 2020

The EPIC 2020 project builds capacity and know-how ­to ­promote ­the ­most­ efficient ­use ­of­ available bioenergy resources within ports and port regions. To generate sustainable urban economic growth for Cities, ports and regional businesses based on bioenergy resources and environmental and social values EPIC 2020 targets the unused bioenergy resource potential.

EPIC 2020 supports the transformation of port areas into ­efficient ­and ­carbon-neutral,­ urban-integrated­ energy systems by applying the industrial symbiosis approach.

Improve know-how on networking for promoting bioenergy resource symbiosis at port sites.
Elaborate a precise picture of interlinkages between­ biomass ­and ­bioenergy ­flows.
Stimulate biomass conversion businesses and development at port sites.
Roadmap for bio resource based symbiotic port development.
